Well, I don't WANT to insult you. I haven't TRIED to insult you I don't
think I HAVE insulted you. (But, since you've obviously TAKEN insult, I
suppose I should appologise for whatever affront I may have inadvertantly
caused.) I HAVE answered your latest EMAIL directly, and I thought it might

My comment was adressed to Aaron's assertion that all of the bikes in the
game cost about the same (with the obvious IG exception!) BUT he was working
on the Ork bikes being bought as a Kult of Speed (only one per Ork Horde)
and the SM bikes being bought as a Ravenwing (technically Dark Angel only,
thus imposing restrictions on what sort of
companies they can take) but even IF included in another Space Marine
Chapter, it would be likely that the restiction of only one per army would

No, you can't split them up... (You would be thinking of Manticores, the
only IG artillery that has a choice...)
